Just a little early-morning shopping trip. This spring, I plan on living in stripes … along with these destroyed boyfriend jeans. Isn’t this necklace fun? I found it at Francesca’s for $10. Score!

Happy Wednesday! This week is flying by. It’s been a busy one, but a productive one (the best kind).

I love cheeky things (pun intended), so when this scarf was sitting in my local TJ Maxx just waiting to be picked up — on clearance, no less — I couldn’t wait to wear it. I haven’t been wearing many scarves lately, but the lip print on this one was too fun to ignore!

Indian summer dressing

Dress: Derek Lam for Target (similar—on sale!) | Booties: Payless (similar) | Clutch: Francesca’s (similar) | Necklace: Garage sale (similar) | Sunnies: Lauren Conrad (similar) | Ring: Forever 21Nails: Essie’s Vested Interest

When Indian summer hits and all I want to do is layer and wear fall clothes, the only thing to do is to dress simply. I’m glad I kept my summer dresses out for days such as this. Red, navy and touches of gold? It’s the very best of summer — hopefully until next April or May.

P.S. Isn’t my fox ring cute? You can get yours at F21 for less than $3!

Sweet things

I’m back! It’s good to be in the swing of outfit photos again. I spent most of my vacation in shorts and t-shirts, but seeing as it’s still in the 90s here in Omaha, I’m wearing something similar — only slightly elevated and sweeter. You can’t get much sweeter than polka dots, a Peter Pan collar and a headband. I toughed things up with studs (my flats) and spikes (my ring and bracelet).

Did anybody watch the U.S. Open final last night? I was rooting for Djokovic, but I’m happy for Nadal and his win. If anyone has tickets to any of the grand slams next year, keep me in mind as a travel buddy!

Simple pieces

Blouse: Goodwill (similar) | Skirt: Kohl’s (similar) | Wedges: Relativity (similar) | Bag: Michael Kors (very similar) | Sunnies: Lauren Conrad (similar) | Ring: Kate Spade via TJ Maxx (similar) | Cuff: Gift (similar) | Nails: Essie’s Mint Candy Apple

After a stellar Goodwill trip last week, including finding the Michael Kors I’m wearing in today’s post, I’ve had Goodwill on the mind. My roommate and I may or may not have made two trips to two different Goodwills at two different points in the day yesterday. We’re addicted. 

I love that these seemingly simple pieces come together to make one of my favorite outfits to date. You can’t go wrong with creamy lace, chambray and straw.
